iPad doodle meet expressive arts (or what’s that weird stuff in your head?)
Yesterday, I posted my first doodle/sketch/painting with the iPad ArtRage app. One way to experiment with materials (even virtual ones) is to know what you want to do and attempt to do it. That’s what I did yesterday.
Another way to experiment is to plunk the materials onto the page and mash them around and see what they give you. That’s what I did today. In fact, I turned to my expressive arts background for the freedom to play, to make something that looks like nothing. As I worked some interesting things emerged and some messes were created. That’s the way it goes.
In the blending of shades of purple, I noticed something that looked like a rabbit. (Looking at messes of blended color can be like lying on your back in the grass and finding shapes in the clouds.) And I noticed something that looked like a wolf. So I traced around them with “ink,” and named the piece “Dream with wolf and rabbit.”
I didn’t really have a dream with wolf and rabbit, at least not in the way you’d think, with sleep and everything. However, I do like to imagine this as a different sort of dreaming.
